Londinium Compact.

I would personally consider output volume as one of the important factors when deciding. Currently using a Pavoni and I'm pretty sure I would like bigger output from my next machine. From what I understood the Vectis would not help me much in that area. This also comes down to coffee preferences, I mostly enjoy the lighter end of the

Londinium Compact.

so is this aimed at the more traditional drinker then? till we get real world data, its all speculation- heat up times, temp stability, profile etc. im sure in good time we will see that presented. the little lever 'cant' be as good as the big lever or it would negate the point of the big lever. i

La Marzocco Linea Mini User Experience

(Not sure if this should be in a separate thread?) I've just noticed the "New Zealand price" for a new Linea Mini has gone up quite a bit from NZD$6,649 to $7,935 ($1,286 increase) .

Lelit Bianca v2 for $2200 or Breville Dual Boiler for $1700. Please help me choose

The Bianca is a much better build quality than the Breville to the extent that Breville have just bought out Lelit to try and improve their reputation.

Easiest way to reinsert E61 cam into group after lube?

It's just easier to remove the bottom section. One extra thing to unscrew and then inspect the cam follower. It's an extra 2 minutes once you have done it. Actually I do the top as well, replace the o-rings on the FCD, lube and put it back together
